Assistant Professor, History of Technology
Humanities Department, Illinois Institute of Technology
I am currently serving as Vice Chair, Operations for the SIGCIS.
My research focuses on the history of computing and gender, particularly in Britain and its former imperial territories. My goal is to study how connections between national prestige, labor, and productivity define collective understandings of technological progress, and how that relates to social progress. I study how labor pools are expanded or constricted by feminization and deskilling, masculinization and professionalization, and the class implications of white and pink collar machine work. I am particularly interested in the global history of computing's ability to enhance and emend U.S.-centric narratives of technological progress.
My recent publications and news are available on my website: www.mariehicks.net
I also occasionally contribute blog posts to the main page here at sigcis.org and helped organize the 2011 SIGCIS workshop--please drop me an email if you'd like to learn more about presenting at a future workshop!

History of computing
Armand Van Dormael has published two books about the history of money: “Bretton Woods: Birth of a Monetary System” and “The Power of Money”. Several years ago, he decided to buy a new computer and discovered that the European manufacturers had given up production. His investigation into the history of computing led to the discovery that in 1948, two German scientists had developed functional transistors for account of the French government. He also came to know the French engineer who, in 1972, built the first microcomputer, the Micral. He is completing the manuscript of "The Silicon Revolution".
